After putting together a strong set of spring practices and continuing the momentum through the start of training camp, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Tim Tebow will finally get the opportunity to showcase his improved game in Sunday's preseason opener. Teammate Riley Cooper has seen Tebow's progress first hand, and he can't wait to finally see him in live action.
"He's having a great camp,'' Cooper told reporters, per True Jersey. "I wouldn't expect anything else. I mean he's one of the toughest players I've ever played with, and that rubs off on everyone else.''
Cooper had previously played with Tebow when the two of them were college teammates at the University of Florida. They developed an excellent chemistry on the field. The last time Tebow appeared in a game at quarterback was during the 2013 preseason.

"I can't wait to see him play,'' Cooper said. "I know what he's capable of doing out there. It's going to be fun. I'm sure he's gong to do well.''
The NFL world will get its first opportunity to see what Tebow has to offer after retooling his mechanics from scratch and learning Chip Kelly's quarterback-friendly offensive scheme. You can add Cooper to a growing list of Eagles teammates and coaches who are excited about what they've seen from Tebow so far.
